Less than two months after its release, Lil Wayne’s latest album is eligible for platinum status after moving one million units. While the RIAA has yet to officially certify the project, Wayne celebrated the news on Instagram.
“THANK YOU !!” a grateful Weezy told his 10 million followers.
C5, which spawned the Swizz Beatz-produced hit “Uproar,” debuted at No. 1 with 480,000 equivalent album units following its release in September and scored the second-biggest streaming week ever for an album.

After much debate, theorizing and disagreements, Marvel has finally put the issue of their cinematic timeline to rest.
For years fans have debated what happened first and in which movie, but after last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming implied it took place a full 8 years after the events of 2012’s The Avengers (huh?!), Marvel began to feel the pressure to clear up their cinematic timeline for the sake of their fans sanity.
Now Screen Rant got their hands on the official MCU timeline and though that Spider-Man time jump was an obvious hiccup that can’t be taken back at this point Marvel Studios made another interesting choice to list 2008’s Iron Man as having took place in 2010? Watcha doing, Marvel?!
You’ll also notice that not included on the list are Marvel’s television and Netflix shows such as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Luke Cage and Daredevil. And though we all know that 2019’s Captain Marvel is set to take place in the mid 90’s, we don’t know which year(s) it’ll actually be set in, so it seems like Marvel’s playing that information close to the chest.
Either way check out the MCU timeline below and let us know if it finally puts your mind at ease or raises more questions than it answers.
1943-1945:Captain America: The First Avenger 2010:Iron Man 2011:Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor 2012:The Avengers, Iron Man 3 2013: Thor: The Dark World 2014:Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy,Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 2015: Avengers: Age of Ultron,Ant-Man 2016:Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming 2016-2017: Doctor Strange 2017: Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War
Justine Skye opened up by sharing eye-opening details of the physical and mental abuse she endured in her new record and video “Build.” After she pressed the like button on a series of tweets implicating rapper Sheck Wes, fans are in full cancel mode and want the “Mo Bamba” rapper outta here.
That is the million dollar question but Skye’s fans want him canceled ASAP. The two tweets that sparked everything that Skye co-signed on outed Wes as her abuser and focused on her probably suffering watching Wes’ star rise.
Sheck wes is an abuser… somehow this will be conveniently and selectively forgotten even tho anyone with sense knows that mo bamba don’t even bang like dat
Now while her fans have quickly come to her defense by calling for the cancelation of Travis Scott’s young protege, there are others who feel this is karma. Those not keen on deleting “Mo Bamba” from their playlists were quick to point out Skye’s defense of Ian Conner after he was accused of being a serial rapist by numerous women. Even Khelani gave some interesting thoughts calling out Skye in a now-deleted tweet.
Skye took notice of all the backlash and apologized for her statements she made at the time in a tweet, using the notes app of course. She let off another tweet neither outright confirming nor denying Wes was her alleged abuser stating “I never said who it was because I knew it wouldn’t matter to a lot of you.”
Regardless, despite her previous statements when it came to the Ian Conner situation no woman should have to endure any kind of abuse while in a relationship. You can see all the reactions this situation has sparked in the gallery below.
Is Frank Ocean about to make his highly anticipated return? We don’t know for sure but the Blonde singer took to his IG page (which is a private account by the way) and posted a video in which he’s rocking out to what sounds like a new Frank Ocean cut.
With “I’ve got visions for my life!” blasting out of speakers in the background, Frank viciously bops his head in sync with the beat. Could this be a preview to what the Cali crooner has in store for his fans? To kick off 2018 Frank took to his Tumblr page to cryptically let his fans know that “If You Liked 2017, You’ll Love… 2018.”
Is Ocean plotting to drop a new project guerilla style? Could be but until he actually confirms a new project we’ll just have to sit here and wait to get served whatever Franky’s cookin’ up in the kitchen.
Juice WRLDhas a smash hit with his song “Lucid Dreams” which borrows musical elements from rocker Sting’s 1993 track “Shape Of My Heart.” It appears that Sting allegedly threatened legal action over the song despite giving his earlier blessings, but Juice WLRD isn’t too stressed.
In a series of now-deleted tweets, the track’s producer, Nick Mira, fired off some missives towards Sting, including a not-so-polite “F*ck You” stance.
“F*ck @OfficialSting and his WHOLE team,” Mira tweeted over the weekend. “After taking 85% of Lucid Dreams (for interpolating Shape of My Heart, NOT EVEN sampling) he threatened to take us to court for trying to get any %. Sting ALSO flexed stealing our money and said it put his grandkids through college.”
Juice WRLD responded via Twitter with, “Lost millions made millions…the song impacted to many ppl in a good way for me to be upset over it. There’s always more money to be made and I will make it so.”
Check out the song in question, “Lucid Dreams” from Juice WRLD’s Goodbye & Good Riddance project below.
Sean “Diddy” Combs paid tribute to Kim Porter during a private memorial last night.
Over one hundred of Porter’s closest family and friends, including French Montana, Mary J. Blige, and Pharrell, gathered at Diddy’s Bel-Air mansion on Sunday (Nov. 18) to celebrate the 47-year-old actress-model, who died Thursday (Nov. 15). The entryway was filled with candles and black-and-white photos of Porter. Throughout the Welcome Home celebration, loved ones shared stories and fond memories while reflecting on her life.
Earlier in the day, Diddy returned to social media to pay tribute to the mother of his children with a heartfelt message. “For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t,” he wrote. “I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby. I miss you so much.”
He continued, “We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER SHIT!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love.”
Quincy, Porter’s 27-year-old son with Al B. Sure!, also paid tribute to his mother. “I am broken…& the only thing that makes sense right now is that you were way too good for this silly world we live in,” he wrote on Instagram. “I love you so much MOMMY. Please give Mee-Maw the biggest hug and kiss for me.”

Porter was found dead in her Toluca Lake, Calif. home on Thursday. According to TMZ, the mother of four had recently suffered from the flu, and complained she wasn’t feeling well before going to bed Wednesday night. The cause of death will not be determined until toxicology results come in in the next several weeks.
Law enforcement sources tell us … 6ix9ine was arrested Sunday night by ATF agents in NYC, and the agents also hauled in his ex-manager, Shottie, at the same time. One of the other suspects arrested is Faheem Walter — aka Crippy — who got shot a few weeks ago during the altercation with Tekashi’s record label head. All 4 men are facing racketeering and firearms charges. We’re told the investigation was a joint effort by ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security. (TMZ)
I’m hearing RICO and Racketeering charged … don’t quote me on that. Won’t be able to tell exactly what he is being charged for until indictments are unsealed or until feds start confirming what’s up. More info to come the morning.
According to reports, 6ix9ine was charged under RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) and taken into custody along with two affiliates of 6ix9ine, Shotty and Crippy. RICO refers to people who participate in organized crime along with the penalties if convicted. Federal offenses are prosecuted by government agencies such as the FBI and often carry penalties far more serious than those levied by the state courts. (Independent Loud)
Music mogul Diddy made sure to give close friends a chance to bid farewell to late ex-girlfriend Kim Porter. The hip-hop executive held a private memorial service this past weekend in California with over a hundred people in attendance.
More than a hundred people came to Diddy’s Bel-Air home Sunday to remember Kim. The house was filled with photos of Porter and the family. A candlelit walkway lined the entrance as guests arrived. French Montana, Mary J. Blige and Pharrell were among the guests. The official cause of death will take 4 to 6 weeks, when toxicology reports are in. (TMZ)
Sunday night, Puffy shared rare Kim Porter moments and broke his silence on the tragic death.
It seems so long ago, but America seemed more unified and sensible when President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obamaoccupied 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington. Now as private citizens, the elegant Mrs. Obama is currently on a book tour and her husband made a surprise appearance while comparing themselves to good friends Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
The former president showed up with a bouquet of flowers during the promotional event for his wife’s memoir, “Becoming,” in the nation’s capital on Saturday night.
“This is like – you know when Jay-Z comes out during the Beyoncé concert? … Like, Crazy in Love?” he said, referring to instances when the rapper appears at his wife’s concerts during performances of her famous song. “It’s the same thing. It’s just a little sample to enhance the concert.”
When the former president appeared on stage, an audience member yelled, “we miss you!” as the crowd cheered.
The event was moderated by former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. Michelle Obama talked about their life post-White House, and how they are taking a step back to reflect on what they accomplished.
“We haven’t had much time to reflect over these eight years because we were so busy doing and so busy trying to be perfect, and to get everything right that rarely did we have time to sit back and acknowledge what we’ve done,w” she said.
Without a doubt, the Obamas are sorely missed for sure in comparison to what’s going on right now these days.
